Responsible is That Good or Bad

Held responsible, is that a bad thing? How was the question posed?

  • Alvin York was responsible for saving hundreds possibly thousands and the capture of hundreds of enemy soldiers in WW I!
  • Hitler was responsible for atrocities to numerous to mention!

So, responsible - How do the majority hold them responsible in a good light or bad, that is a big portion of the information not being shared.

Something that is telling - The poll really consisted of the uninformed to uninterested … and excerpt:

And much of the country draws a blank on Republican Ted Cruz of Texas despite his 21-hour Senate speech

Obama & The Muslim Brotherhood - What's the Goal

This has some interesting information, why don't you take a chance and read it, research the facts, and just see if your current president's goal and that of his friends coincide with yours… oh, and one more thing, try to do this based on beliefs vs beliefs and goals vs goals - NOT based on skin color… can you do that?

Muslim Brotherhood Wants to Re-Elect Barack Hussein Obama:

... believes that its purposes in the West are, for the moment, better advanced by the use of non-violent, stealthy techniques.  In that connection, the Muslim Brotherhood seeks to establish relations with, influence and, wherever possible, penetrate government circles in executive and legislative branches at the federal, state, and local levels; the law enforcement community; intelligence agencies; the military; penal institutions, the media; think tanks and policy groups; academic institutions, non-Muslim religious communities; and other elites.  The Brothers engage in all of these activities and more for one reason: to subvert the targeted communities in furtherance of the Muslim Brother's primary objective -- the triumph of shariah.

SSDD - Same Stuff Different Day

Is anyone surprised that North Korea is protesting South Korea's navel exercise? I question if the should get the satisfaction of being reported every single time...

The most recent threat, carried by the north’s state media, said Pyongyang’s forces would deal harshly with any threat proposed by Monday’s kickoff of annual South Korean-U.S. military drills that North Korea characterizes as a dress rehearsal to an invasion.

I Not Sure that is Mistreatment

I ain't buying it! Ford says
"I'm not telling it all, because it was so horrible you could not even believe it," said Ford, D-Memphis. She added later that she was restrained during a hospital stay during which "I didn't even know where I was."


Well knowing what we know about her, drunk or high or both doesn't constitute mistreatment - BTW, you don't know where you are yet you can remember ever detail while your there, REALLY?

We (The US) Might Want to Denounce!

I know these threats from the north are a dime a dozen; however, they could also mean something - could lead to loss of life... especially, if there is no acknowledgment or consequences from the US!


A year ago Wednesday, North Korea launched an attack on the civilian island of Yeonpyeong, killing two marines and two civilians and shattering the sense of security that South Koreans had enjoyed for almost 60 years.
The island shelling came half a year after North Korea torpedoed a naval ship, the Cheonan, killing 46 sailors

An Idea...

...police your own before you tell us how to live our lives!

Those who seek to run our lives
Barack Obama tells us we are greedy and selfish, Nancy Pelosi compares some of us to Nazis, Dick Durbin compared our soldiers to the Soviets who ran the gulags. Still others call us racist if we disagree with them. Any time you turn on the TV you can find some politician lecturing us and wagging his finger in our faces, telling us how we should live our lives.

Do You ONLY Want State Approved Media and Information?

So Washington has a problem with misinformation on the internet - One of the best liars in politics is who they send out to advocate an agency to police it -
Bill Clinton doesn’t like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet
So who is going to police them?

No, politicians can't be trusted, which has been proven many times and one of the reasons the internet has grown so quickly - Well lying politics and lying "main stream media", another bunch unworthy of trust!

No, I prefer to take my chances deciding who I should believe and who I shouldn't - I DO NOT need/want "state approved media/information"!

Bill Clinton: Create Internet agency - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.com

Don't Apply to Him

Obama proves he really believes he is above the constitution! I have always thought "squaring away" our courts and local government representatives should be the priority - Our president has jumped to the front, got to go ASAP (2012).

Some excerpts:
he would not abide by the section of the law defunding the establishment of so-called "czars."

So are We Going to Hear...

…this is all for oil?
Well I know if the Bush administration were still in office we would hear everything the US is doing "is just for oil", so I guess we will wait and see, but I am pretty sure I know what we will not hear.
From the article:
Oil fell for a third day in New
York on speculation that territorial gains by Libyan rebels may
quicken a resolution to the country’s civil war.

Solidarity - Yea Right...

...let me get this right - It is "solidarity" when liberals agree with the "cause" and a mob when they don't.

Tea Party demonstrators had no violence (though accused but never proven), no taxpayer went without services (i.e. fake sick calls), no calls for "blood in the streets" - Yet they were a mob...

Now we have liars faking sick call-in(s), politicians saying "sometimes you have to get bloody", and protesters issuing threats...and this is a good thing.

Guess I am a stupid southern boy, because that makes no sense to me - AND, I pray it never does!

Another View on Unions

This is an interesting read of someone, from a pro-union family, changing their opinion of unions…

I now saw the union as a grand rip-off. The union working man wasn't some noble, virtuous saint, fighting the good fight against the Robber Barons, as I'd always been taught. He was a drunken, stoned, uneducated, vulgar slob, ripping off a piece of the action for himself.
